[REC] Shutter is a horror game where you must progress through levels while avoiding the paranormal and solving puzzles. The story will progress as the player goes through the levels. This Game will not only focus on his recordings but even on his story and his life. You take the role of a reporter named Connor, which will be reporting Penny hill a dark hunted asylum. You will be equipped with the latest equipment; animated camera which includes night vision and a shutter effect. Filming every action you take and taking screenshot's of paranormal activity. Game will include feature's like fear, stealth, investigation and much much more.


Health System: The player has a low amount of health, and will die after around 4 hits from an enemy. The player's health will be monitored by the cracks on the camera screen. This means you're camera is damaged and you need to fix it, To Fix it in some levels you will find a Repair box, Use this to fix you're camera cracks. Camera cracks will only disappear when You fix it via an toolbox. If the player dies, he will drop to the ground and the screen will fade to black. The game will then automatically load the last saved game.

Panic System: If something paranormal happens, the player's panic level will increase. Staring at enemies will also cause the panic level to increase. A higher panic level means the player becomes harder to control due to Fear. The player will also occasionally shake when panic levels are high. Fear decrease when a safe area is reached.Also Pills can be taken to decrease panic level.

Inventory System: The player has an inventory to store items such as health packs, Pill, and keys. This means the player can use the items when they choose, rather than forcing them to use them at a specific time.

Movement System: The player will slowly walk and can sprint a little quickly. This means walking is slow enough to easily investigate, and sprinting is fast enough to escape enemies. Stamina will be unlimited.

Camera System: Pressing F will activate Night Vision to make it easier for the player to see in dark areas. Press the right mouse button will make the camera take a picture - sound plays and white HUD fades out. An objective could be to take photos of items.

Save/Load System: Auto save zones will automatically save the game when the player enters them. Resuming game in the menu will automatically load the last auto save.

Investigate System: clicking the mouse button means the player investigates the item. clicking again causes the item to be picked up.

Stealth System: Pressing V will activate stealth system, where the players see where is darker hide from The paranormal.

Zooming System: Pressing R to zoom in and T to zoom out. This will help you check for objects and see things more clearly before going in the way!

I'm also sort of confused as to why this is on FPS Creator. FPSC is like the bottom of the barrel cheap free engines that is like a decade? Out of date, and it really shows in this alpha/whatever this may be.

It just seems like this prototype is put together in a very seat-of-the-pants, random and lackluster way. Like, why do you just throw the player into the asylum without any explnation? Who am I and why am I here? I thought I was some random UrBEX explorer, or someone doing a school report before the latter segments of the game.

You don't mention the character's name at all, what ther trying to do, who they are, or their relationship to this place. When the text appeared saying 'Thats the creature from my dream' I said aloud; what dream? I didn't have any dream, did I miss something?' Only to have those questions semi-answered two levels later where all the creature does is stand in the corner of my character's bathroom like some sort of pervert.

Also, why isn't the god damned tutorial in the beginning of the game like practically every game in existence? Prototype or not, this is the most inexcusable blunder. Why are you telling me how to walk halfway through the game? Why are you giving me pills and duct tape without any real reason? Why would my character want to take 'calm pills' when exploring a dangerous and dilapidated, abandoned insane asylum? Ghosts or not, it seems like a stupid idea to go wandering around a condemned building while doped up on some unknown medicine I found.

I mean, did we all play the same game? Because what I played did not seem anywhere close to the 7.7 rating it got.

This game is beautiful, Though the 'walking' seems slowish, it fits perfectly in with the over all world and atmosphere of the game. I honestly cannot complain because the speed is perfect. I'm sure if anyone of us were to go to a asylum that was spooky we would all walk slow. Honestly this man has balls becuase I would sit in a corner for 10 minutes if somethingwas chasing me and leave. So the walking is perfect for those who are complaining about it becuase it fits how a actually person would…

Lowest Rated (3 agree) 1/10

*Random frequent tv static with loud audio (makes no sense on a camera during recording). The very beginning starts you in a room you can't quite see and no determinable direction how to begin. *Ridiculously slow movement with no run option. Since you can't fight back, you can't even run away when attacked. *There is little in the way of exploration. Linear and far too dark. *No gamma setting. No torch. Just a lot of black corners and corridors. *No control options. Not even a place to see what…
